Nelson 2014-2015


Nelson’s students had a great beginning to the2014-15 school year! They are in the routine of learning and are enjoying meeting new friends! Our 2nd graders are serving as great role models for our 1st graders and kindergartners. Second graders are showing our younger students the ropes, being good role models and ensuring that they are leading the younger students in the correct way.

Our kindergarteners have learned how to navigate the building and are getting down to the business of reading, math, writing, science, health, etc.  Our 1st graders are focused more on learning to write with details, how to solve more complex math problems and developing deeper comprehension when reading. Our 2nd graders are steadily working to ensure that they are ready for 3rd grade.  The academic expectations are higher, and they are meeting those expectations! 

We have already learned two new character words of the month: Friendship and Responsibility.  Students are displaying great examples of both as they are greeting each other every morning with the words of “Hello, Hi, or Good Morning!” In addition, students are demonstrating responsibility in completing homework, assisting each other and understanding the role that they play in ensuring that Nelson School remains an wonderful place to receive a strong foundation in learning!
